Ni Wo Ta

is a complete first-year program that offers beginning learners of Chinese an enriching language learning

experience through a narrative video story, innovative instructional design, robust technology integration, and

comprehensive cultural coverage. It employs an intuitive and functional approach to proficiency development, with

effective strategies to tackle tough areas such as tones, literacy development and difficult grammar points.

The full program, consisting of four preliminary units, 14 main units and a concluding unit, is split into two volumes. Each

volume is paired with a Literacy Workbook and iLrn™: Heinle Learning Center, an all-in-one online course management

system. The program is designed for zero-beginners at the college level but it is also suitable for high school students

who have some exposure to the Chinese language.
